To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Gansey Vest

Jones: "This is a dressy gansey vest, knitted circularly to the underarm. No seams except the shoulders! Knit purl patterns are easily memorized and can be changed at the whim of the knitter." This is a handsome basic piece as given, with knit/purl patterning rounds/rows separated by a few rounds/rows of st st. (One is a sideways arrowhead pattern, the other diamonds.) Neckline and armholes are finished by a few rounds of st st (worked in the round), which will naturally roll in a most pleasing fashion.
